Merry Friggin' Xmas

Holy crap! How did December sneak up on me so fast? I mean, I just moved up here – how can it be the end of the year already?! This Christmas will be the third time in my life that I have not celebrated with my family. Alaska Airlines enjoys a monopoly in Southeast Alaska and they pretty much double prices during the holidays. A flight to Chicago is not worth $1170 and I don’t have the frequent flier miles to cover a free flight this year. Well, I have the miles, but I am saving them for a bigger trip. I didn’t think it was going to be a big deal to stay in Juneau since most of my friends are usually here for the holidays but this year, with the exception of two or three people, it seems like just about everyone is going home. Assholes. At least I don’t have to deal with any airports in December.

Sorry you don't get to go home for the holidays. Don't go too crazy on the nog this year!

Another reason to be Jewish. You dont feel bad if you miss Chanukah, and it is a hell of a lot easier to get home for Yom Kippur and Passover because no one cares when Jews travel.

You should look for a deal for a flight to Chicago the weekend of January 9th. I heard there's an awesome play being performed that weekend . . .
